Boston ACT Tutoring FAQ

If your student needs help preparing for the ACT, Varsity Tutors can connect you with experienced Boston ACT tutors who can work with them in a one-on-one setting.

Most students planning on attending college need to take an admissions exam before applying to the schools of their choice. The ACT is one of the most common exams that students take, but preparing for it can be challenging--especially if your student isn't used to taking standardized tests. The good news is that we can find you an experienced instructor who can work with your student, helping them learn how to overcome their academic challenges so they can do their best on the ACT. Let's look at some of the benefits that come from private instruction.

How is Boston ACT tutoring different from classroom learning?

Unlike traditional classroom lessons, Boston ACT tutoring gives your student the chance to work closely with a qualified instructor in a one-on-one setting. They get to receive the undivided attention of their tutor, meaning they're able to benefit from constructive feedback and meaningful explanations that can help them better understand difficult concepts.

What's more, your student never has to worry about keeping up with the pace of the class because there's no ready-made curriculum to follow. The content covered in the lessons can be designed specifically for your student, focusing on the areas they need to work on. This allows your student to spend more time on areas that are especially challenging for them to understand, while lightly touching on the topics they've already mastered.

One of the biggest advantages of Boston ACT tutoring is the ability to learn through personalized lessons. Your student can prepare for the ACT in a way that works best for them. Their academic mentor understands there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to learning and can consider your student's personality and preferred learning styles when creating content for lessons.

If your student is an auditory learner, their instructor can include more discussions in the study sessions. If your student prefers to learn through visuals, their tutor can implement more infographics and images in the lesson. Working with Boston ACT tutors can increase the chances of your student learning in a way that's fun and effective, which can help them feel more positive about the ACT.

Boston ACT tutoring also gives your student more control over the directions of their lessons. They can work with Boston ACT tutors to review all areas of the ACT, or they can focus on a specific section like reading or science. If your student is taking the optional ACT Plus Writing section of the exam, their tutor can help them improve their writing skills by teaching your student how to write structured essays. Boston ACT tutors can even narrow the focus of one or more lessons down to specific subjects covered in the ACT, like English grammar, chemistry, and critical reading. This can help your student utilize their study time more efficiently by shifting the focus to major areas they need to work on.

What are the benefits of having my student study with Boston ACT tutors near me?

Boston ACT tutors can help your student work through their challenges through one-on-one assistance. What's more, they can keep track of your student's progress, measuring how much they've improved between each study session. They can then use this information to help them plan future lessons, so the content covered in each study session is more likely to help push your student closer to their desired outcomes.

The goal of Boston ACT tutoring is to help your student prepare for their upcoming assessment, and part of doing well on the ACT is developing good test-taking skills. The focus of private lessons isn't limited to the subjects covered on the ACT.

Your student can also learn valuable test-taking strategies to help them do their best when taking the exam. Their tutor can teach them how to manage time, so they're less likely to rush through the test. They can learn how to identify important information from questions and problems, how to spot the subtle differences between two or more multiple-choice answers that look the same, and various tips that can help them reduce the impact of test-day jitters.

There's always the chance your student could memorize the wrong information when studying for the ACT by themselves. Boston ACT tutoring can prevent this from happening, giving your student the chance to study with someone who can check their work. An academic mentor can ensure your student is learning the correct information, so that they're more likely to make informed decisions when it's time to take the test.

As a parent, you can also benefit from your student's private lessons. Their instructor can teach you ways to help your student with their studies. You can learn about different ACT supplemental material you can review with your student, or different ways you can create a comfortable learning environment for your student.

How can I fit private instruction into my student's schedule?

We understand that you and your student have busy lives, which can make it hard to squeeze private lessons into an already-busy schedule. That's why we're happy to find you a personal tutor who can meet with your student at a time that works best for them, even at night or over the weekends. That way, your student doesn't have to worry about rushing through a study session because they've got somewhere else to be.

Regardless of whether your student works with a tutor over the internet or in person, they're able to study alongside a skilled professional who can help them reach for their goals. With that said, online lessons can give your student an added layer of convenience.

Our Live Learning Platform allows them to collaborate alongside a skilled instructor from the comfort of their own home, the Cambridge Public Library, or anywhere else around town that has internet access. All they need is a compatible computer, tablet, or mobile device. This means that your student can bring the learning experience to them, never having to worry about commuting across town to attend a study session.

If you're working about the level of engagement of online lessons, don't be. Our platform uses several tools to facilitate interaction between your student and their instructor. Video chat makes it easy for them to participate in face-to-face learning sessions with their tutor, while a virtual whiteboard makes it easy for them to observe notes, diagrams, and any other important information covered by their academic mentor.

Other tools used in online lessons include a shared document editor, which can be especially helpful when studying for the ACT Plus Writing section, and integrated questions. Best of all, every virtual study session is automatically recorded and saved on the platform. That way, your student can watch previous lessons whenever they want to review older topics covered in private tutoring.
